About Sharing my Comics
Man, comics are meant for sharing! TOTALLY GO FOR IT. You don't need permission to post the comics on your site or anything like that. If you want to print Dinosaur Comics in your not-for-profit magazine or newspaper (most campus newspapers are like this), that too is totally fine and I'm not going to ask for money. I only ask that you drop me a line so I get to know about it and feel good, if just for one brief shining moment! If you want to print Dinosaur Comics in a for-profit paper then drop me a line and we can talk.
Oh my goodness I get so much email. It's at the point now where I can't respond to it all, but I do read every one. I'm sorry! If you contact me and need a response and don't get one, feel free to poke me again.
About Interacting Socially
This can be tricky! You want to be friendly, but you don't want to come on too strong. My best advice is to carefully observe others, and to relax!
